Pragmatic Churches and Pastoral Ministry Students, Conclusion

For context, be sure and read the first nine articles listed here.

The evangelical church in the West may have lost its mind, but there is no reason to believe that it is a permanent loss. Pragmatism has certainly gotten a foothold in the church for now. However, there is hope. If the church once again begins to take seriously its role in the life of the pastoral ministry student, the next generation of leaders might just prove to be the generation that restores the Christian mind to the church in the West. This upward cycle, however, must start somewhere. These articles have contended that the place where such a revolution must begin is in the life of the local church. The church has been complacent for far too long. It is time that the world sees what she can do when she begins to shed this plague of pragmatism.
